    This Week’s Recommendation: Outside The Law

    Title: Outside The Law
    France, 2010
    138 mins, language: French/Arabic
    Directed by Rachid Bouchareb

    Outside The Law was the 781st film screened by RFS on 13th March 2018. It was the fifth equal ranked film of Season 55, with an audience rating of 89%.

    This film was the director's Rachid Bouchareb’s follow-up to 'Days of Glory' (screened by RFS in Nov 2006), using the same actors.  The earlier film dealt with the African colonial forces that helped France rid herself of Nazi occupation. This one takes the story a stage further to when those same soldiers fight against France for the self determination of Algeria.

    To those of us who probably know very little about this post war period in both France and Algeria, it is a bit of an eye opener.  The film pulls no punches in its portrayal of French injustice and brutality, or the ruthlessness - and cruelty - of the Algerian nationalists.  It has been criticised for being anti-French, but it is really anti-colonial and a slice of awkward history from France's recent past.

    'Outside the Law' represented Algeria at the 2011 Academy Awards,, where it was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.

    Full film notes available in the Twickenham & Richmond Tribune - http://twickenhamtribune.com
     
    The film can be streamed from Amazon Prime and discs are available from Amazon and other retailers.
